Investigators said “aggressive driving” near the intersection of Central Avenue in Goose Creek led to escalating tension between the two men.

Officials said Holmes continued following the Middleton’s semi to an area on Highway 52 near the Strawberry railroad crossing.

That’s when authorities say Middleton was shot in the abdomen by Holmes.

Middleton later passed away at a nearby hospital.

Holmes now faces one count each of murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, according to court records.
